Quality Management System (QMS) Services for Medical Devices Overview

Industry

Quality Management System (QMS) constitutes a set of designed and structured processes, policies, and procedures that help ensure that medical devices are safe and effective and compliant with international Regulatory standards.

The main purpose of QMS in the medical device industry is to ensure that the device meets the quality and safety standards established by the respective Regulatory bodies. The QMS for medical devices must comply with relevant regulations and standards such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 13485:2016, United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) Quality System Regulation (QSR), and European Union Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR). These regulations and standards, each specific to a particular region, provide guidance and regulations for establishing, implementing, and maintaining the QMS within the respective areas. Medical device industries/organizations must establish and maintain the target country-specific standards for product distribution.

 We provide you with assistance in the following medical device QMS requirements:

QMS is an essential element throughout the lifecycle of a medical device, starting from design and development right up to manufacturing, distribution, and Post-marketing Surveillance (PMS). It is a comprehensive system that involves various stakeholders, including manufacturers, regulators, healthcare providers, and patients.
